Lady Scylla

Population9.482 billion



The Martian Empire of Lady Scylla is a colossal, socially progressive nation, ruled by Empress with a fair hand, and renowned for its burgeoning Eagle population. The hard-nosed, hard-working, democratic population of 9.482 billion Martians enjoy a sensible mix of personal and economic freedoms, while the political process is open and the people's right to vote held sacrosanct.

The medium-sized, outspoken government prioritizes Defense, although Welfare, Law & Order, and Education are also considered important, while Spirituality receives no funds. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Laconia. The average income tax rate is 21.0%.

The Martian economy, worth 430 trillion Pounds a year, is broadly diversified and led by the Arms Manufacturing industry, with major contributions from Uranium Mining, Automobile Manufacturing, and Woodchip Exports. Average income is 45,417 Pounds, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 3.6 times as much as the poorest.

The nation's official head of religious affairs is an atheist, the police crack down on tax evaders without mercy, Empress has just been declared ruler of Lady Scylla in an international press conference, and the government has declined to declare any particular religion as its 'official' one. Crime is well under control, thanks to a capable police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Lady Scylla's national animal is the Eagle.

Lady Scylla is ranked 200,649th in the world and 7,302nd in Osiris for Largest Agricultural Sector, scoring -7.94 on the Mu-Bah-Daggs Productivity Index.
